Gone with a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West

Gone with a Handsomer Man

Don’t you love when you find yourself reading the right book at the right time?  You know, what I mean, don’t you?  When you are totally in the mood for deep and scary, and your book is filling that need, or you want a nice period piece to take you back to a kinder, gentler time, or you want some frivolous beach read. 

Well, during the tornadoes, we had no power, no internet and no cable.  Thank goodness, my kindle was all charged up, and waiting for me was, Gone with a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West.

It was everything I needed at that moment.  It totally lured me in from the very beginning.  It was the perfect combination of romance, mystery, chick lit, some food…everything I love!  In addition, the writing was everything I have come to expect from Michael Lee West. 

Some of my favorite lines:

All I ever wanted in life was true love, a set of copper cookware, and the perfect recipe for red velvet cake.

I fixed him with my blandest expression – not cold, because I didn’t want to send coldness.  I wanted to send blankness.  I () you. 

I cannot wait for more in the Teeny Templeton series, I can tell that this will be one that I will anxiously await each new book!

    I’m having to share the Kindle with Hubby. I may have to break down and get my own.
    I have a journal full of lines that I love from books. People can be so clever with words!

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean about the right book at just the right time. So glad you were able to lose yourself in a good book during that time.

    Those same storms swept through my neck of the woods. I felt like Dorothy in Oz–even had Toto. I’m ready to move to a windless place. What a wonderful review–thank you so much for taking the time to write it and for spending time with Teenykins. XX00 Piper writing for MLW, who can’t figure out how to change back to Gollum at the moment.

    I loved it so! I read it in bed with a flashlight. Can’t wait for the next book! Hope your writing away! For I can’t wait to meet the daughter!
